Niacin has been scientifically proven to reduce anxiety in sufferers and there is research that suggests it might work similarly to benzodiazepine. In other words it reduces the electrical activity in the brain that is sometimes responsible for anxiety.
5-HTP is the precursor of the neurotransmitter serotonin. Serotonin is responsible for stabilizing mood mostly and it does have some role in sleep and hunger control. L-theanine can also act as a neurotransmitter and it has similar effects of reducing stress. It slows down all of the effects of stress too, like an increased heart rate or sweating.
There is some evidence that vinpocetine improves blood flow to the brain to deliver more of these nutrients and oxygen so that the brain cells can work optimally and don’t release stress signals.
The manufacturer recommends taking one capsule per day. They do not specifically state at which time of the day it should be taken nor whether it should be taken with food or not. This is important because the time of the day can have an effect on how a person sleeps or functions during the day.

Possible Side Effects
Vinpocetine is one of the ingredients that could cause side effects. It increases the risk of bleeding and might suppress the immune system. It is therefore not advise for anyone that has disorders related to these effects to use this product.
Some of the ingredients have not been evaluated for their safety in pregnancy and breastfeeding and so should be avoided by these women too.
There is no satisfaction guarantee offered for this product but customers may return unused product within 30 days from purchase. The customer is given 85% of the purchase price back as the remainder is used as a restocking fee. We don’t find this policy to be helpful for a customer at all.
When a manufacturer does not offer a satisfaction guarantee, we question how confident they are truly in their product’s effectiveness because they would rather that the customer bears the risk of the product not working than themselves.
Nova Nutrients InSight HT Review – The Bottom Line
The ingredients included in this product are fairly well researched and are somewhat likely to fulfill the manufacturer’s claims. The price of the supplement is also not too high. However, we are not completely sure about the effectiveness of this product because the manufacturer is not confident enough to guarantee it. The discount that they offer for subscribing is also quite minimal compared to other discounts that other manufacturers offer.
